ELLIS. r?e 306 Penn. a., near 10th s'rtet THE DEVIL'S LADDER BV LEITCH RITCHIE _J; J""1 of ftn ancient castle, it of which there are now only some scanty ruins left, was of a churlish disposition ; and one niffht ,T1 PRrt'cular?was a dark and stormy night turned away from his door "a little old T. ,mPIore<i shelter. The next day this lords young and lovely daughter was missing; and in the afternoon the wretched father saw her clearly from his castle window standing on the inaccessible heights of the iiederick He knew now, of course, with whom he had to deal the evening before?one (>x the gnomes of the mountain ! and set to work to strew his bread end alms, and to curse anl to pray, and to make vows and lad ders. All was in vain. * our years after, when a young knight, re turned from the wars of Hungary, was wan denng among the rocks of the mountain, dreaming of the fate of Garlinda, who was by this time the heroine of the popular songs, he saw an old man in a situation of singular dan ger. The wretch was far above the knight's heal, lying on the very brink of a rock, and fast asleep Every now and then a twist of I his .linos brought him nearer the edge; he was evidently in the midst of a dream ; and in another moment he would undoubtedly roll into a gulf, where he must be a dead man long betore ho reached the bottom To shout would only hasten his fate ; and the generous Knight, with extraordinary hazard to his nock, climbed up the rock to his rescue. He had just grasped the unfortunate being by tho collar, when the latter awakened, ana perhaps terrified by the touch, sprang over the cuff. He struck, however, on a projecting point of the rock, and clung on with a death grip The knight, horror struck, risked every thing to repair the mischief he had done He followed, but more cautiously ; and would have succeeded this time in saving his man, had not the strength of the latt?r given way at the moment He sunk helplessly to another icugo of rocks ; and there also was pursued by the enterprising philanthropist. Our adventurer, however, was now sudden ly alarmed by tho growing darkness of the gulf, and by a strange conviction he felt, that tb? old man was not alarmed at all; and all at once be began to mutter a paternoster, and re ascend the rocks. His foot slipped, how over, at the moment, and he foil upon the ob ject of his fear and compassion, who received him with Bhrieks of wild laughter, and both parties tumbled head over heels to the very bottom of the cliff " W hiit is all this noise about ?" demanded another little old man. coming out of a hole in the rock in the dress of a miner, and with a lamp in his hand. The knight's companion was for tome time unable to answer for laugh ing ; but at last?" Brother," said he, ?? this young tellow would needs save my life, and venture his own to help me out of the rocks ! W hat shall we do in return ? Shall we give him Garlinda to wife 7 " Garlinda is in tho safe keeping of our eld est brother at tho top of tho mountain. We have no more control over her than we have ever the moon " I know that; but our eldest brother is a good na:ured fellow, at the bottom, although he hate? churles Do you, who undeistand the trade, make a ladder for the young man to ascend the mountain, and leave tho rest to mo " Toiling tho knight then to take care and bo at a oertain place at the bottom of tho moun tain by daybreak, he showed him a subterra nean passage by which he easily found his way out of the gulf. As the adventurer retreated he already heard the noise of felling trees, the J grating of the saw, the thump of the hammer, i and he pleased himself with the idea that the | little old man's ladder was something more ! than a joke. The next morning he was punctual to his appointment, and sure enough a ladder ap ! oared reaching to the very top of the moun tain ! The knight was a little giddy at first when he began to mount; but taking care not 1 to look down, and to keep saying bis pater- ' noster incessantly, he at length gained the summit. Here a sight awaited him beiutlul enough to repay a thousand such dangers ; it was Garlinda, lying asleep upon the velvet turf, Lilies and roses ! was there ever such a girl The knight s lips watered as he looked at her. " Hush ! hush !" whispered a little old man, stealing out on tiptoe from behind a rock ; " I am one of tho carpenters, your honor, that made the ladder, and I am sorry to tell you that Garlinda's master is inexorable. He is here, however, lying as fast asleep as she is, and a single blow of your swori will delivor your mistress and save your life ? ' " 1 would not slay a sleeping man. " replied the knight, ,lto deliver a doten mistresses, or to save my own life, were it as manifold as a i cat's " "Oh ! do not slay him ! ' exclaimed Garlin- | du, awaking at tho moment; " ho has stolen me from my father it is true, but indeed be has been a father to me himself'" " What is to do here ?" said the eldest bro- | ther, in a gruff but broken voice, as he catno from behind the rock, wiping his eyes '? Let us have no more words, for I know all Here is your dowry, Garlinda, (giving her a basket of precious stones,) tell your father that 1 forgive him Good bye, sir kuight; you that would break your neck to save an old man's but who would not slay a sleeping man either for love or fear! good bye ! 1 shall see you again at certain lamily epochs, as often they occur, and never come empty-hande<l Now, show them the subterranean route, and let the ladder hang as a warning to the couu try, till it falls in pitces by the action of the elements." Something Uich ?The editor of the St. Louis Herald has seen a Sharpe's rifle, and the most zealous Free Stato man of Massachu setts cannot but laugh at the remark he puts forth thereupon. Wo wish he could be handed over to the tender mercies of the ladies he ridicules for a short time : We s*w yesterday a regular built Sharpe's rifle, which had come all the way from the blue-light town of Haverhill, in the old Com monwealth of Massachusetts, and has played ita part?that of ' masterly inactivity' ? ui the border wars of Kansas. It had been christened in a church, as a 44 son of thunder." and was sent firth as a missionary to "shoot the gospel" into the hearts of the border ruffians. It was nn "iron side" exhorter, and in proper hands might have humbled many a raging sinner on the borders of Kansas. But the bands that bore this ark of the Beecher covenant proved recre ant to the trust, and the god of Mew England idolatry was sold for bread to fill the stomach of its bearer, or to pay his passage back to that peaceful home in Yankee land whero puaokin pies are abundant, and where the terrible ruffians are not seen. It fell into the hands of Horace E. Dimick, and ita former owner went on his way rejoicing This rifle-this messenger of glad tidings? which had been blessed by Abolition prayers, bore upon it a strange inscription, "Presented by the ladies of Haverhill, Massachusetts, to the ladies of Lawrence, Kansas." It had passed through fair .hands, and red lips no doubt pressed it with fcnatical fervor before it was sent on its long ioprney. It was de signed to speak in thunder tones to the Kan sas squatters, but its voice was hushed?it made no report, and wai one of theso trca? urea which moth and rust hath corrupted It had been more honored in the breech than in the barrel. We advise the ladies of Haver hill to do their own shooting In future. Let them be loaded in the same way that Sharpe'i riflo is, and people Kansas in the aboriginal fashion, and the ruffians will not disturb them A SormeM Robinson Crusoe Has coon June 20 ?A Barman arrived her* a few day a ago. having been picked np by a Chinese junk at tea. in a nail boat by him aelf, about 90 miles east of Tavoy. The man ? history of himsslf ia a strange on li* wee one uf six men who proceeded, about seven months ago, in a boat from Tavoy to one of the Preparia islands, named Bandar Their object was to obtain a cargo of coooaeata. It is aa understood and acknowledged rule am<mg the Burmese tribea that inhabit the western coasts of Tennaaeerim, that the first party arriving at any of these islands has the sole right and title to the cocoa nats of the season. A day or two after the Tsvoy men bad reached the island of Bundur. a party of the Mouimein men arrived at the same place for tho same purpose, and were of coarse some what annoyed to find the Ttroy men had ar rived before them They asked to be allowed to halves in the cats, but tb* Taroy men in sisted on their right to the whole, and told the Mouimein men that they might get tho cocoa nuts from the neighboring small islands of Wa The M?ulinein men went and returned the same day saying there were no nuts worth having, and said they would remain on the island of Bundur and would take what were left by the Tavey men. This was aooordingly settled between them. It seems that nuts coald only be obtained in fine weather, or from some reason or another they did not try to get any when it rained, but fished for sea slugs instead, a fish highly prised by the Chinese, and fetching a good price where there are Chinamen. One rainy day, as the Tavoy men were fishing, threo being on the seashore, and three in the water the Mouimein men made an attack on them with muskets and daws The three Tavoy men on shore were killed, and the threo in the water, of whom the narrator was one, being fired at, swam out to sea Twoof the**, after swimming some hours, sank, and tho third and only survivor, being a very good swimmer, floated on bis back, and while so stated he went to sleep and awoke in the mid dle of the night, finding that the tide wad drifting him into the island again lie rogtined the shore before it was light, and finding, as he stumbled along the shore, a hollow trunk of a tree standing upright, with a hole at the top, he got into it, and that tree actually was his place of concealment for six months, lie could see through a chink in the tree when the Moalmen went alroad, and managed to get cocoanuts when he knew they were not about The kernel waa bia food, and water or milk his drink. At last he found his enemies had gone, and in venturing abroad and going round the island, he per ceived that they had taken both boats with them. He declares that one night he dreamt that in a certain part of the island there waa ly ing a .-mall boat, and on proceoding to the spot next morning he found it. This seems like romance, but the man gave his evidence in a calm manner to the magistrate here, Dr. Martin, and had told the same story exactly to the captain of :he Chinese Junk, as soon as he camo to himself after being taken on board, for he was at first too agitatod to say anything To continue the strange narrative, our Robinson Crusoe remembered that one of his comrades had broken the blade of hia . knife in opening a cocoa nut. and had thrown | it down in a particular apot. He found the | knife on the ground among the grass, and | though the blade was broken, managed to cut ! a rudder an l a mast These he attached to the little boat, and taking a supply of cocoa nuts with him started for xavoy, being guided by the sun by day and the stara by night. He was proceeding on his course when he was picked np by ths junk. The truth of the man's story was partly confirmed in court, for one of the native offi cials connected therewith told ths magistrate i that his wife, who had lately returned from Moolmein, had mentioned to him that the wife of the person whom our Robinson Crusoe had named as the head of the Moulmsin crew, bad lately come out in very costly garment!, and that her daughters wer* also very richly dressed, and that it waa generally known that I the man had made lately a very saceesrful expedition to cne of the Preparis Islands, and had brought back a rich load of coooa nuts Robinson Crusoe has been sent to Moui mein to identify the murderers, whom hs knows by name as well as by appearance.
